Gaining control over use of SST profiles

Expert Carol Woodbury explains the only way to extract SST profile information on iSeries servers.

I am in the process of trying to gain control over the use of SST profiles by our admin staff and I was wondering if there is some sort of trick in extracting the SST profile information from our iSeries servers (42 total)? I can't remember what OS library they're "hidden" in.

Unfortunately, as of V5R4, IBM has still provided no means of "harvesting" the SST profiles other than to sign in to the Service Tools yourself and gathering them by hand. These profiles are defined in SLIC and are therefore not in any i5/OS library.
